The career portfolio

Whereas a career path tends to be a singular pursuit (climb the ladder in one direction and focus on what is straight ahead), a career portfolio is a never-ending source of discovery and fulfillment. It represents your vast and diverse professional journey, including the various twists and turns, whether made by choice or by circumstance.

Especially for those just starting their careers, it’s important to know that you’re not going to have everything “figured out.” The ability to navigate ambiguity and “not knowing” are in fact among the most valuable skills.

When you halt your work on a given thing due to fear or aversion, you are re-entering the nonproductive phase. Physical action ceases, and pointless rumination begins. Anxiety will rise until you enter the Productive Phase again. This is a good reason not to switch tasks unnecessarily. Push one thing at least until it is coasting, if not finished.

The moment you start avoiding action again, the process restarts.

Problem With Goals

What if you have only Goals, and no Systems?

  1. Win/Lose - Successful and unsuccessful people share the same goals.
  2. Momentary Change - Achieving a goal changes your life only for a moment.
  3. Either/ Or Conflict - Either you can achieve the goal and succeed, or you don't and are a failure. 
  4. Goal vs Long Term Progress - What do you do after achieving the goal, your motivation mostly ends right after it's achieved. And you'll slip back to your old routines.
